  • CREATE Seminar w/ Mike Azizi

    Wed, Sep 10, 2014 @ 11:30 AM - 01:00 PM

    USC Viterbi School of Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: S. Massoud (Mike) Azizi, Principal Engineer and Associate Technical Fellow Reliability, System Safety and Specialty Engineering Aerojet Rocketdyne

    Talk Title: PRA Application to Offshore Drilling Critical Systems

    Series: CREATE Monthly Seminar Series

    Abstract: The nuclear and aerospace industries systems engineering approach typically incorporates Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) to estimate risk using quantitative methods to determine what can go wrong, the likelihood of occurrence of such events and the probable consequences. Thus, PRA provides insight into the strengths and weaknesses of the system’s design, operation and maintenance strategy. For instance, in the nuclear industry PRA is traditionally used to estimate the core damage and potential consequences relative to the reactor, facilities, power grid, environment and public. A Space Shuttle and launch vehicle operations PRA would provide an estimated risk for operations on the ground and during the launch, on-orbit, re-entry and landing phases.

    Similar discipline as those applied in the nuclear and aerospace industries can also be applied to various “mission critical” onshore and offshore oil and gas drilling, exploration and production systems. This paper describes the PRA methods as they could be applied to these systems and how the outcomes of such discipline can benefit the system’s design, operations and stakeholder interests.


    Biography: Mr. Azizi is a principal engineer and a technical fellow at Aerojet Rocketdyne (AR). He has 34 years of experience in the areas of Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA), System Safety, Reliability, Availability and Maintainability; with applications to Nuclear Utilities, Aerospace and Defense, and the Oil and Gas industry. Mike has worked with various Government agencies (e.g. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NASA, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and the US Air Force) and Commercial customers, and is well versed in regulatory guidelines and industry practices.

    He has been instrumental in saving his clients significant downtime and costs, while improving their systems’ operational safety, reliability, and efficiency.

    Mr. Azizi has a Bachelors Degree (B.S.) in Civil and Environmental (Structural) Engineering and Masters Degree (M.S.) in Nuclear Science and Engineering. He has published more than 30 papers and has received many honors and awards, including four patents from the US Patent Office.

  • NL Seminar- Towards automatic extraction of experimental data from scientific papers [Intern final talk]

    Thu, Sep 11, 2014 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Eunsol Choi & Matic Horvat, University of Washington and Cambridge

    Talk Title: Towards automatic extraction of experimental data from scientific papers [Intern final talk]

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Many areas of science have experienced rapid growth in the amount of scientific literature published. For example, there are approximately 400 new papers published each year in the area of Machine Translation. As such amount of new data is virtually impossible to processes by a single researcher, a new tool is needed that would help researchers explore existing and discover new MT literature. To address this problem we built an approach for automatic extraction of experimental data from scientific papers that populates a database enabling structured queries.



    Biography: Eunsol Choi is a PhD student at the University of Washington, advised by Prof. Luke Zettlemoyer. Prior to UW, she studied mathematics and computer science at Cornell University.

    Matic Horvat is a PhD student at University of Cambridge researching integration of semantics and Statistical Machine Translation. He is originally from Ljubljana, Slovenia, where he completed a BSc in Computer Science in 2012. He continued with a masters in Advanced Computer Science at University of Cambridge, graduating in 2013.

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Pascal Van Hentenryck, National ICT Australia (NICTA)

    Talk Title: Measuring and Optimizing Cultural Markets

    Abstract: Social influence has been shown to create significant unpredictability
    in cultural markets, providing one potential explanation why experts
    routinely fail at predicting commercial success of cultural
    products. To counteract the difficulty of making accurate predictions,
    ``measure and react'' strategies have been advocated but finding a
    concrete strategy that scales for very large markets has remained
    elusive so far. Here we propose a ``measure and optimize'' strategy
    that uses product quality, appeal, and social influence to maximize
    expected profits in the market. Computational experiments show that
    our ``measure and optimize'' strategy can leverage social influence to
    produce significant performance benefits for the market. Our
    theoretical analysis also proves that a ``measure and optimize''
    strategy with social influence outperforms in expectation any
    ``measure and react'' strategy not displaying social information. In
    other words, we show for the first time that dynamically showing
    consumers positive social information increases the expected
    performance of the seller in cultural markets, when using a ``measure
    and optimize'' strategy.

    Biography: Pascal Van Hentenryck leads the Optimisation Research Group (about 75
    people) at National ICT Australia (NICTA). He also holds a
    Vice-Chancellor Strategic Chair in data-intensive computing at the
    Australian National University. Van Hentenryck is the recipient of
    two honorary degrees and a fellow of the Association for the
    Advancement of Artificial Intelligence. He was awarded the 2002
    INFORMS ICS Award for research excellence in operations research and
    compute science, the 2006 ACP Award for research excellence in
    constraint programming, the 2010-2011 Philip J. Bray Award for
    Teaching Excellence at Brown University, and was the 2013 IFORS
    Distinguished speaker. Van Hentenryck is the author of five MIT Press
    books and has developed a number of innovative optimisation systems
    that are widely used in academia and industry.
